Strong Performance Extends Theatrical Run for "The Mulligan"

Pat Boone, Eric Close, Tanya Christiansen and the rest of the cast will be back on the big screen with The Mulligan returning to select theaters. That's thanks to a good performance during its two-day theatrical engagement last month, according to a press statement from the filmmakers.


They did not release revenue figures and the picture is not listed on either of the two main industry tracking sites - Box Office Mojo or The Numbers - but if The Mulligan did indeed claim a spot among the leading quintet of films, it had to bring in more than $1.5 million; that is a good showing, particularly considering the film played on Monday and Tuesday, which are among the slowest days of the week at local movie theaters.


Using golf as backdrop, this picture centers on a hard-charging businessman, played by Close, who is estranged from his family and from God and in desperate need of a mulligan, the term for a do-over of an errant shot. Boone's character, the Old Pro, steps in as a mentor to help the younger man take advantage of his second chance in life.


The Mulligan hits theaters again starting today - May 13th - for two weeks in eight states. You can find out where it's playing via this link to the movie's website.
